Traditional healer, Gogo Magosha joining today to help us understand our dreams on #TheConnection

The Connexion

Have you been having dreams that bother you?

We have Traditional healer, Gogo Magosha joining today to help us understand our dreams – everything from understanding & interpretation and the significance of dreams.

Today’s Talking Points;

1. Can you really dream Lotto numbers...Dreams and instant fortune - we’ve seen this concept in movies, but can it happen?

2. Dreams and the future... If you are able to dream of certain things that happen in life, does it mean you have psychic abilities?
- People who are able to dream of working somewhere, see themselves there and only realise later in life when they eventually find themselves there that they dreamt of where they are.
- People who are able to see a company shut down and not know where and how, and years later see Media 24 shutting down and retrenchments taking place and they are part of the retrenched.

3. Using dreams to heal... Can I channel my dreams to dig into my subconscious and help me deal with my buried traumas? How do I do it?
